Earning a spot on one of Girls on Tops t-shirts has become a rite of passage for fast-rising female filmmakers. Thanks to the fashion mavens at GoT, you can literally wear your fanship for any number of highly worthy directors on your sleeve. Joining the range this year are Zola’s Janicza Bravo, Nia DaCosta and Prano Bailey-Bond, whose debut horror movie, Censor, is well worth shouting about.

Christmas is just around the corner: a time for eating, hanging out with friends and family, and watching timeless festive family movies like Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life and obviously Die Hard.
But it’s also a time for giving and that can be a challenge, especially when everyone’s had two years of sitting around and idly clicking ‘buy’ on major online retailers. To help track down the perfect pressie for the movielover in your life – big and small – we’ve scoured Santa’s sack and picked out a bumper crop of brand-new gift ideas that they almost definitely won’t have. Probably. And for some added prestige, we tapped some of cinema’s top directorial – including Moonlight Oscar winner Barry Jenkins, Last Night in Soho’s Edgar Wright, The Last Jedi's Rian Johnson and The Florida Project's Sean Baker – to give us some recommendations, too.
From French New Wave bags to Bond villain crockery to Home Alone LEGO to a toy Starship Enterprise so sophisticated it would probably ace the Kobayashi Maru for you, there is something here for everyone. Just pop on some Christmas songs, pour yourself an eggnog and get wrapping.
